It was the plan from the beginning to provide a free and
supported stable version of OI, a first stable release is
currently targeted at Q1/2011.

xVM dom0 support has been EOF'd already and nobody has stepped up
to keep it alive so far, so that seems like a dead end.

The old JDK available from our /legacy repo can be legally
installed, currently someone is looking into building OpenJDK.
Regarding JDK versions directly obtained from Oracle you have to
look at the licensing terms yourself.
